Forecast at a Glance
In continuation of the pattern seen throughout the last couple of days, expect mostly sunny skies to transition into abundant cumulus clouds this afternoon. These clouds will once again keep the high temperature in the 70s. As the sun sets, the clouds will dissipate and another chilly night in the lower 50s is expected. The overall pattern begins to change Friday as the upper level trough and surface high pressure that have been providing these below average temperatures moves east. With the surface high pressure to east, the winds will shift from the south prompting a warming trend into the weekend. For the weekend, the forecast is complicated. A weak area of low pressure moves east into the Midwest, and a weak upper level low moves in from the south. As a result, the possibility for precipitation does exist, albeit marginal. The temperatures will be directly dependent on how much cloud cover develops. Saturday, initially starting mostly sunny should reach a high in the upper 80s; however, Sunday, with increased cloud cover may only reach a high in the low to mid 80s. Nevertheless, both days will have increased humidity with only the slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. Ultimately, the heat and humidity remain into next week as an upper level ridge sets up camp over the region.
